Sending my son to spend time in the office, no matter the reason, was never productive for anyone. A better solution is to get to the root of the behavior — if it’s consistently happening, particularly around the same time every day, something is triggering it. Figure that out and find a solution for the trigger and the behavior will stop. If you have a student who has aggressive behavior as you’ve described that is an ongoing safety or class disruption issue then that child needs an IEP and an aide who can deal with the behavior until the cause and a solution can be found.
